-5 reasons my sister should get married sometime else
-A possible cause to the end of the world
Q: what do islands, sigur ros, john vanderslice, art brut, and cat power have in common?
A: they're all playing here while I'll be in Chicago and SC for my sister's wedding. dammit, sis--couldn't you have planned around me?
Speaking of concerts--I mean shows--I'm going to miss And have you seen the lineup to Bonnaroo lately? Ri-DONK-ulous. Radiohead, Tom Petty, Elvis Costello, Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks, Death Cab, Sonic Youth, Ben Folds, My Morning Jacket, Bright Eyes, Devendra Banhart, Matisyahu, Seu Jorge, Les Claypool, Clap Your Hands, etc., etc. Hell--even the comedy lineup's top notch.
I wrote this sort of shitty article about the whole thing a couple months back called "The End of the World: Hippies and Hipsters Unite". If you're too lazy to click on it, basically I write that this whole thing is either going to be a gold mine or the worst mistake ever. I'm hoping for the former; people who support music get my support, as simple as that. But if it's the latter, I'm going to be the first one to say "Toldja so". Don't they know hipsters hate festivals?
